Klores' new shop chases strategic consulting work

NEW YORK: Dan Klores, whose client Sean "Puffy" Combs earlier this

year underwent a much-publicized name-change, has just established a

fresh identity for himself. The president of Dan Klores Communications

(DKC) is now a partner in Isay, Klores, Prince (IKP), a corporate

strategic communications and political consulting boutique launched last


IKP's first big piece of business is Andrew Cuomo's New York

gubernatorial campaign. The new firm will also do crisis communications

work for Cantor Fitzgerald, which contracted with Klores and Morris,

Carrick & Guma (MCG) in October.

Collaborating with Klores on the new venture are Democratic strategists

Josh Isay and Jonathan Prince. Isay, who spent the last year with MCG,

will run the day-to-day operations of Cuomo's campaign, hoping to repeat

the success he had while helming Chuck Schumer's 1998 Senate campaign.

Prince, a former White House senior advisor under Bill Clinton, also

advised Hillary Clinton's Senate bid.

Klores said IKP will operate as an independent entity, reporting

earnings separately.

"The more the publicity element required by a client, the more it will

go to DKC," he said. "The more advice, strategy and counsel it needs,

the more it will go to IKP."
